Every now and then you come across a couple that is just enamored with one another. Despite the amount of time they’ve been together, despite the intensity that is preparing for wedding, they’re still somehow ooey-gooey when they’re in each other’s presence. That, my friends, is Steph and Patrick.Read More
They didn't meet until the moment was right, and the timing was perfect. Once she finally met her prince---everything changed! They've been on the fast course to marriage, and it's been a whirlwind that I'm gladly swept up in.
These two are a passion and exuberance that I've come to adore! Just hearing the story of how they fell in love and how they love their family and friends reveals to me that heir wedding is going to be a day filled of not only celebration---but also of great honor and appreciation of their loved ones.
We held their sunrise session at the Governor's Mansion and Gage Park in Topeka. It was full of so much fall goodness and breezy romantic wind. Take a stroll with me on their somewhat chilly but mostly amazing November engagement. :)
Goodness! Tami has these intensely gorgeous looks that so perfectly reflect her bubbly personality.
The way Jake adores her is something so special and unique to them. It seemed like it took nothing for them to look wildly in love. ;)
Tami let me grab a few shots of her alone, and my word. What a bombshell!
Thank you both for taking the time to squeeze in your engagement session before your January wedding! Now go! Have a gorgeous engagement for the next month and a half. :) Enjoy your last Christmas before you're married!!!
Rachel and Hans are a freaking awesome couple.
Ok fine, I'll say some more. ;) This September they'll be celebrating two years as Mr. & Mrs. Nordgren. It's amazing to me how quickly time passes, and even though we're about the same age---it makes me feel old! They're deep thinkers, who consider their thoughts and actions (I mean---Rachel goes so far as to wear Warby Parker glasses! Adorable + helpful = double-edged blessing), and are centered in Christ. They're passionately invested in their fur child Banjo (I love it when couples ask through giggles if they can bring their dog(s)!) and had to have him accompany them on their session. Otherwise, they spent a better part of an hour giggling, tickling, and looking stupid romantic together in Ward-Meade Park.
Their love for one another is something deeper and more profound than when I last photographed them, and that can only be attributed to the tiny bit of marriage they have under their belts. I only expect greater things from them in the coming years! See what I mean in the following moments:
Thank you both for letting me document your married love! It's something so sweet to capture another chapter of your lives, not to mention have unadulterated Rachel and Hans time for an hour. ;)
